Ilustration of Police chief activity – Jubi

Jayapura, Jubi – Member of House Commission I Papua, Laurenzus Kadepa hopes the Police Chief of Papua, Inspector General Boy Rafli Amar did not break his promise and would investigate the alleged violence case against Albert Nawipa (15) allegedly committed by police officer of  Jayawijaya, Papua, Friday (June 16).

Kadepa claimed to have communicated with the Papua Police Chief and that he would prosecute his members if it were true.

“The police chief regretted the incident, saying that the police officer is now being questioned by the police chief, hoping that the victim will recover immediately,” he said to Jubi on Tuesday (June 20).

According to him, the settlement of this case is entirely on the Papua Police to sanction individual members who allegedly carried out violence if it was proven.


“I deeply regret that a 15-year-old boy is allegedly beaten by a police officer, I get this information from the victim’s family and the victim’s parents want the perpetrator to be processed, I ask the Police to resolve the case,” he said.

The promise must be kept in order for the victims and their kinship to get justice. “The police chief has promised so he has to keep it, to resolve the case thoroughly,” he said.

Separately, Head of Public Relations of Papua Police, Senior Commissioner (Pol) AM. Kamal said the police did not remain silent. After getting the information, the Papua Police Chief directly ordered the Head of Propam to proceed to Wamena, Jayawijaya and conducting an investigation. If the information is true and the results of an investigation indicate there are unscrupulous police officers, will certainly be dealt with according to the rules.

“We got the information last night and Kapolres did not know about it yet, but this morning (June 20), the Chief of Police ordered Head of Propam to proceed to Wamena for investigation,” said Kombes (Pol) AM. Kamal.

According to him, the Papua Police has taken steps to find out the truth of the information. If it proves that a police officer conducted violence, there will be a step taken by the institution.

“We do not tolerate our members who have committed violations, we have been informed by Kontras friends in Jakarta, DPR RI and others,” he said. (*)
